Last year I was blessed to attend a day of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' meeting in Baltimore. It was incredible to interact with bishops and cardinals, interview them on behalf of the Son Rise Morning Show and watch the bishops' discussions and presentations. It was particularly exciting to watch them unveil the long anticipated document, "Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan."
The bishops of the United States are meeting again today. They just elected the new president of the USCCB, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, of New York City. The vice president will be Archbishop Joseph Kurtz, a tremendous defender of marriage and major contributor to the aforementioned pastoral letter from the bishops. Both archbishops are joyful, energetic followers of Christ.
